@Geogypsy: ic! No worries! Sounds dreadful. That "argument" is fool-proof. Also: unDISprovable! So it sucks.

It starts with the (false, mistaken) assumption that "consciousness" exists. It might just be an illusion or something...

Things go downhill from there (in that particular theory) when you start GUESSING the "why" of the Universe. There may OR MAY NOT BE a "why" it's not a "given".

This particular video manages to (mostly) avoid these pitfalls

No worries. I get that you found it on Vimeo. Thought it was a link not the original content.

There's just no winning an argument if the limitations of consciousness are considered to be the only reliable measure of reality.
